Haven't gotten it yet, should come today. I think it sounds like the updates should make it a much better overall camera experience.
I've always liked the Fuji glass, and held onto my 14mm from when I had the X-E1, so paired with the 23mm its pretty ideal as 21/35mm are great focal lengths for the way I shoot.
Real issues I had with the X-E1 weren't image quality, but rather just overall handling of the camera. The ergonomics were great, as I love the classic control interface, but the AF speed and EVF lag really were dealbreakers I couldn't get past. Just drove me crazy how the EVF would freeze up when focusing, or how the camera would hunt.
Sounds like Fuji fixed the issues I had, while keeping everything I liked, in addition to adding some useful features like min shutter speed for auto ISO and some improved MF modes, so I have high hopes
I ordered a Sony A7r as well, but honestly could be just as happy with the Fuji since I don't need 36 megs really, and care more about shooting experience and glass options.
A7r has some great files for sure, but if they don't have glass for a long while, like what happened when I was an early adopter of the NEX cameras, then what is the point of that great sensor.
Besides that, $1000 camera with high quality $899 glass certainly is easier on the wallet than a $2300 camera with $1000+ glass!
